The brand new Short Shot Kids International Short Film Festival is founded in Moscow in May 2022 on the basis of the Short Shot Fest (Top 100 Reviewed festival on FilmFreeway).

Short Shot Kids is a film festival for and about children.

Short Shot Kids is a film festival that brings together films made by professionals for children and youth. The uniqueness of the festival is that films made by children and teenagers under 16 are also allowed to compete.

The main idea of ​​the festival is to attract the professional community to the niche of cinema for children and youth, which has received insufficient attention in recent years. Short Shot Kids is also an opportunity for young directors/screenwriters/actors/cameramen to try their hand at filmmaking and be assessed by film industry professionals.

The Short Shot Kids accepts short films from all over the world. The main condition for participation: the film must be dedicated to children (films about children and for children), or filmed by children.
